Show & Tell

Happy Halloween! It only makes sense that my Show & Tell this week will be in honor of today. Let's start in the front yard:
Greg and Jessi made the headstones several years ago from styrofoam insulation. A few weeks ago I asked him to get them down from the garage rafters so I could take them to the theater, but once he did, he decided to keep them here. I added some black flowers, a wreath, a bag o' bones, and that sweet black crow. Some cobweb finished it off. I think this will be an evolving display from now on. (Click on the photo to enlarge, then you can see the details.) Come on up the stairs. Greg thought this sign was funny...
When you come up the steps, I hope you feel welcomed by the pumpkins and gourds. The lantern was in the back shed at Grandma and Grandpa Adams' house - it's quite old. The 'welcome' is part of a sign made for me by an internet friend. Our last name is on the bottom, and it will be hung up when the witch leaves... Oh yes, my bowling balls are behind the mum. They'll be coming in the house soon.

Here is everything all together:
Come on inside now. This little table is next to the front door. A little black tulle, orange lights, and faux bones make a fun spooky spot. Our Halloween treats will be stationed here for giving out tonight.
One more little thing. I made this chalkboard from a Goodwill frame. I had an old markerboard in the garage, and Greg cut it to size for me to fit the frame. A little chalkboard paint, and I'm loving it.
(So some of these things were inspired by photos I've seen on other blogs, but I'm sorry that I didn't keep track so I can give credit.)
